Adventures ‘are part of a good holiday’

Adventures are an important part of a good holiday, according to new research.

And while I've always thought that, it's nice to see some research backing it up. A survey from Travel Alberta shows that 28 per cent of recipients think doing something you thought you wouldn't be able to is a marker of a good holiday.

Travel journalist and Toploader guitarist Dan Hipgrave thinks so too, commenting: "It's important that you experience everything you can out of life. Life is short and there are an awful lot of things out there."

Embarking on adventures is also a good way to escape your day-to-day life, according to Darlene Fedoroshyn of Travel Alberta - and provides experiences that stay with you once you return home.

And they aren't the only ones that think so. In a recent interview with the Daily Telegrah, comedian Chris Packham advised travellers to go somewhere they find "exhilarating" and to get involved with the local culture.
